Not *exactly* a filk, but I wrote it over the weekend. [Feb. 1st, 2017|08:41 am]

Intro:

So, this is a Simon and Garfunkel tune, heavy on the Garfunkel, who *still* has far more range than I so I need two things. COuld someone give me a reference note?
(friendly filker strikes a note on guitar) Okay, I was hoping for something written, that's why I asked for a 'note'. And one final thing that will protect the ears of those who have knowledge of voices... (looks around) Deborah? Where's the helium? Oh, well...."

TTTO: Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream

Last night I had a stranger dream than any I'd pull from my rump
I dreamed the Presidency went to Donald OhMyGod Trump
I dreamed inauguration day,
Attended by powerful men,
And with the speechifying we knew
There'd soon be more fighting again.
And when the speechifying's done
And a million freedoms frayed,
They laughed a bit maniacally
At thoughts of the wealth to be made.
And the people in the streets below
Were protesting all around
As ACA, enviro regs, were tramped on the ground.
Last night I had a stranger dream than any I'd pull from my rump
I dreamed the Presidency went to Donald OhMyGod Trump

Try thinking of it the other way around: not "What can I do while listening to music?", but "What can I listen to music while I'm doing?" (My mainstay used to be listening to the radio while driving, but the family car was without a working radio for at least five years, so I sorta got out of the habit. We now have two cars again, and "my" car has a fully functioning radio - except I'm not usually awake during the time when there's anywhere to drive to.)

Listen to music while you're doing any mundane activity - cooking and/or eating, doing the laundry, reading, playing a game, falling asleep. You don't necessarily have to be paying a lot of attention to the music; it'll seep into your subconscious, and eventually it'll pop back up and demand that you find out more about it.

Go to YouTube, but don't log in; a page of videos selected by some algorithm will appear, and there are always some music videos among them. Click on one of them. Click on one of the ones that appears alongside of it. Lather, rinse, repeat :-)
